That&rsquo;s because too many companies make it too easy, sometimes blatantly ignoring laws that are the safeguards to support both the health of the public and, in the end, the health of the industry.</p> <p>It&rsquo;s not a matter of low-hanging fruit that has federal regulators eyeing the products, ingredients and claims so closely. There are actual risks involved. Where there&rsquo;s smoke, there&rsquo;s fire, and there&rsquo;s an awful lot of smoke wafting up from an awful lot of fires.</p></div> <p><a href="http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/letter-nbj-clearing-smoke" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/letter-nbj-clearing-smoke#comments Research and Insights Mon, 25 Jul 2016 18:33:00 +0000 1615951 at http://newhope.com A race of results http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/race-results <div class="field-deck"> Sports nutrition science is getting better, but does marketing still finish first? </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p>In the race to the shelves in sports nutrition, marketing is too often sprinting across the finish line while science is still warming up. Products make it to market, unproven and unready. Studies are cited before they are published. The sprint to profit in the &ldquo;what&rsquo;s next?&rdquo; relay is an event often ill-suited to the slow and steady methodology of hard, and expensive, science.</p></div> <p><a href="http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/race-results" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/race-results#comments Research and Insights NBJ Subscriber Mon, 25 Jul 2016 18:33:00 +0000 1615961 at http://newhope.com Keep it clean http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/keep-it-clean <div class="field-byline"> Marc Brush </div> <div class="field-deck"> Third-party certifications begin to define the market for a cleaner sports nutrition </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p>At press time, the International Olympic Committee was still tallying up how many Russian athletes would be barred from Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro next month. This comes on the heels of a doping scandal in Russia&rsquo;s track and field program, a scandal that now stretches across 20 Olympic sports and implicates several government agencies in an orchestrated program of swapping dirty urine samples for clean ones. Gold medal count? Nyet.</p></div> <p><a href="http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/keep-it-clean" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/keep-it-clean#comments Research and Insights NBJ Subscriber Mon, 25 Jul 2016 18:33:00 +0000 1615981 at http://newhope.com Navigating fat fads http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/navigating-fat-fads <div class="field-byline"> Joyanna Laughlin </div> <div class="field-deck"> Weight-loss supplements or supplementing weight-loss? </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p>If it&rsquo;s time to heal the black eye the natural products industry got from recent lawsuits against manufacturers of weight-loss supplements, there&rsquo;s a new trend in dieting that could do it: Using supplements as support for healthy dieting instead of supplements as diets themselves. It might even help restore consumer confidence in supplements.</p> <p>At least Starkie Sowers, thinks so.</p></div> <p><a href="http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/navigating-fat-fads" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/navigating-fat-fads#comments Research and Insights NBJ Subscriber Mon, 25 Jul 2016 18:33:00 +0000 1616091 at http://newhope.com The GNC Effect http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/gnc-effect <div class="field-byline"> Lisa Marshall </div> <div class="field-deck"> After a bleak year for the sports supplements giant, will other retailers change their ways? </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p>By all accounts, these are tough times for GNC.</p></div> <p><a href="http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/gnc-effect" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/gnc-effect#comments Research and Insights NBJ Subscriber Mon, 25 Jul 2016 18:33:00 +0000 1616101 at http://newhope.com Sprouting up http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/sprouting <div class="field-byline"> Lisa Polito </div> <div class="field-deck"> Plant-based proteins gain legitimacy, sales </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p>In sports nutrition, plant-based proteins are no longer a novelty or fringe offering. Once a curious oddity, the vegan pro athlete is now as common as tattoos in a biker bar. Even among bodybuilders, those fanatical worshipers of whey, the tide is turning. Sites like veganbodybuilding.com and JackedontheBeanstalk.com promote vegan, whole-food bodybuilding regimes while protein powders adopt to-the-point brand names like IronVegan. Even Bodybuilding.com curates a &ldquo;Top 10 Plant-based Proteins&rdquo; list.</p></div> <p><a href="http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/sprouting" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/sprouting#comments Research and Insights NBJ Subscriber Mon, 25 Jul 2016 18:33:00 +0000 1616111 at http://newhope.com Bars hopping http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/bars-hopping-0 <div class="field-byline"> Cindy Heller </div> <div class="field-deck"> Innovation matches pace with strong growth </div> <div class="node-body article-body">merging trends including protein, probiotics, paleo, vegan, superfoods, insect protein, meal replacement, sustainable energy, healthy sweeteners, and refrigeration are influencing natural products bar innovation and fostering growth.</div> <p><a href="http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/bars-hopping-0" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/bars-hopping-0#comments Research and Insights Mon, 25 Jul 2016 18:33:00 +0000 1616131 at http://newhope.com D-activated http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/d-activated <div class="field-byline"> Barry Bortnick </div> <div class="field-deck"> Is vitamin D an overlooked opportunity in sports and weight loss? </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Athletes seeking an edge or couch potatoes looking to lose love handles should ponder the benefits of vitamin D.</p> <p>And supplement companies might want to take a fresh look, too.</p> <p>Fitness experts, researchers and nutritionists contend vitamin D is an essential but often overlooked ingredient for strengthening the body, boosting endurance and losing weight.</p></div> <p><a href="http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/d-activated" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://newhope.com/research-and-insights/d-activated#comments Research and Insights NBJ Subscriber Mon, 25 Jul 2016 18:33:00 +0000 1616141 at http://newhope.com
